5:20am
drinking water. the agency has begun its own investigation. preliminary data shows levels as high as consumer reports. but with a wide variation from product to product, the problem begins with where rice grows. that makes it easier for it to absorb arsenic that grows in soil. parents may want to limit or eliminate giving their children canned tuna. this is from a new report from a consumer group concerned that tuna may lead to mercury poisoning in children. after testing samples from 11 states, researchers found the amount differed greatly in each can. although lite tuna had less than albacore tuna. they advise children should never eat albacore tuna and be limited to one serving of light tuna if under 55 pounds fp fda is standing by its recommendation that children can safely consume 12 ounces of light tuna or 6 ounces of

5:23am
comes to a big hit. >> the influence of being older, an older person that's been to what they've been through is something that i think should give a little bit of credibility from the athletes side. >> and that was sara sampson reporting. also part of the outreach, about 150 youth and high school coaches are getting some fact sheets. that highlights the symptoms and treatments for concussions, should one occur. stay with us. there's much more ahead on 11 news. moo [ woman ] dear chex cereal,

couple of days. and it's hard to believe that we're talking about frost, when we were just enjoying 80 degrees yesterday. current weather now, clear skies over a major portion of the state. except for the cloud cover down in ocean city and the clouds that we're seeing in the far out west. they're also dealing with fog this morning which should lift in the next several hours. all due to this front. finally moved out of the way last evening and brought a couple of spotty showers to the greater baltimore area. couple of -- about a quarter inch of rain. at the airport they had about 004 of rain. another big story associated with this front is the cool air shooting down from canada. this is bringing some very chilly temperatures to a majority of the middle portion of the country. you can see a well defined trough here that pretty much divides the middle portion of the country.
7:40am
fargo, north carolina. 26. they were 27 last half hour. now they drop down to 26. hard to believe we're talking about 20. your forecast today. looks good. 70 to 73. we'll concentrate on the good news. breezy. keep an eye on the gusts out there. 20 miles per hour which we were expecting. for the ravens game. great football weather. mostly clear and crisp. northwest winds five to ten miles per hour. 50 to 54. don't be surprised if you see a couple high 40s by the time the game is over. cool temperatures stay with us at least through monday and tuesday. you're on going to get to 69 tomorrow. our next chance of rain comes wednesday into thursday. a 40%, 30% chance. if you look at temperatures, things look pretty good. we'll stay in the mid 70s. >> thank you. howard county health office dr. peter vilas joins me to talk about his new book "tapping into the wire" the real urban crisis.
7:41am
thanks for coming in. >> thanks for having me. >> you teach a course on the wire at hopkins. i guess that's how this all started? >> right. uses the wire as sort of a lens on major urban issues. not just health issues. crime. juvenile violence. housing. education. etc. so i realize not only would that be an interesting class but could be an interesting book. >> so what are some of the things that when you're talking with your students, that they are particularly surprise bid or intrigued by? >> a couple of things. one is they think this is all -- many of the students come from outside baltimore, almost all of them do, so they come to baltimore and they're mostly freshmen in the class thinking, this is what baltimore is. so one of the things, disspell the notion that baltimore is only the wire. it shows parts of baltimore that is real. second thing is, the biggest issue for them is, realizing that these kids that are some on the wire and some other folks,
7:42am
there's a whole bunch of reasons they end up the way they do. there's not one single reason. and they can't just pull themselves up by their boot straps as many people will say. there's a whole range of things that has to be done to improve the situation of these kids in the city. >> what are some of those things? >> i think there's a four legged stool, if there can be such a thing. access to health care and healthy foods. two, adequate and decent housing. three, good public schools. four, most importantly minimum wage jobs for the parents. if you have all four parts of the four legged stool you'll be more likely to have a successful community. >> it's interesting you didn't say they need to have a stable two parent house hold. that's just not realistic. >> it's not realistic. if you have decent wage jobs available and dean decent education you'll have a much more successful life for your
7:43am
kids and for your family. >> do you see baltimore. you've been here for many, many years. do you see baltimore addressing those issues? >> to some extent. some things are better. the education system is modestly better. health care access is not particularly better. housing is not gotten too much better. we'll be focusing too much on getting minimum wage jobs in the community. i know the grand prix was a big deal. instead of spending money on a grand prix and for three days worth of money losing proposition, we should be spending those resources on developing businesses to come into the neighborhoods that are severely hit to provide minimum wage jobs for people there. >> we've seen a number of issues involving guns in baltimore county. what do you look at in terms of mentality surrounding guns. what do you see that needs to be
7:44am
changed there? >> i see, this is my personal opinion. my kids go to public school where we have not had gun problems. knock on wood. i feel that for hunting, people that want to hunt, fine. rifles are fine. but for people living in the city, i think there's no tron have assault weapons. semiautomatic weapons. i'm very much more gun control. i know that will be controversial for some. i think there's just -- the access to guns is so immense in this country, with 300 million guns. as many guns as people have. there's no other country in the world that has the kind of gun violence that i do. the fear that people kill people, guns don't kill people. it makes it much easier to kill people with guns than with fist ors with knives. so the vast majority of guns out there really makes it more dangerous for folks, i think. >> i'm sure it's something you talk about. >> interesting. thank you so much for coming.
7:45am
>> thanks for having me. >> will you be at the book festival? >> yes. i think 2:00 and 3:00. thank you. again, the name of the book is "tapping into the wire" the real urban crisis. stay with us. first a look at last night's winning lottery numbers.

>> welcome back. joining us now is katie flurry with a pet looking for a good home. good morning. >> who is this? >> little courtney. >> she is an 8 week old kitten
7:48am
who might be the most fabulous kitten ever. >> everybody always says that. >> she is. she's laid back. she's been here for probably half an hour just laying here giving kisses and playing. actually had to take her toys out of her box because she was just playing by herself in her box. she would make an awesome pet. >> we'll have information on how they can adopt her. speaking of pets you want to talk about scratching. >> one of the biggest complaints from people is that cats scratch. they scratch their furniture. there's a lot of things out there they can do. get yourself a good scratching post. one of the biggest important things to think about when you're placing your post is where it's scratching. it's scratching on the couch, you don't want to put the post in a different room. i recommend getting a standing post. the cat will play in it, will rub in it. you can put cat nip in it to entice the cat to go to it. >> i was going to say, does that
7:49am
get them to learn to go to the post. >> yeah. they really enjoy it. there's scratching posts like this where it has a toy built in where the cat can play. but all scratch their nails. and if you know there's certain spots you can put foil down for example on the couch so when the cat jumps up it will get scared from that and not go to scratch that area. there's also double-sided tape. lastly, my fafb faefsh -- favorites is kitty caps. >> you slide those right on there? >> absolutely. it's really a fun thing to be able to do. plus, your cat won't be able to scratch any more. >> plus they have the ravens purple. what was her name? >> this is courtney. >> if you'd like to adopt courtney or any of the other fabulous animalious can contact the american spca.

♪ time for sunday brunch. joining us this morning chef rudy from maryland live casino. good morning. >> good morning. thank you for having me. >> thank you for being here. what are you makeing? >> something simple. we wanted sunday brunch to be something that could be done. we didn't want to pull out one of those fancy chef tricks. this is three ingredients. this is fresh atlantic salmon, shitake mushrooms, cilantro. we're on going to add two other items other than salt and pepper. sesame ole and soy sauce. very simple. i have made a steamer, which you can see is very technical here. a pan, a kid, a piece of foil with some water in it. that's literally going to be my steamer.
7:54am
something you can do at home. you don't need a fancy piece of equipment to do this. >> i never thought of doing that. >> so we can do that. actually -- >> salt and pepper. >> little salt. i already heated the bottom. i already cheated. little pepper. >> this key with sam season don't overcook it. >> and also buy fresh. if you can smell fish or seafood when you go into your market, maybe you want to go somewhere el. it shouldn't smell like seafood. >> what about the frozen pieces that you could get? >> nothing wrong with frozen fish. again, it is generally frozen at sea. it's handled very professionally, very well. we're gonna slide this sesame oil over. the real secret to this entire dish is that the sesame oil will be smoking hot. literally that's going to cook the remainder of the vegetables that we have. we're going to steam this piece of fish until it's done. we're going to plate it here.
7:55am
drizzle some soy sauce over the top. >> okay. >> we're gonna top it with shitakes here, some of the cilantro here. we're gonna take a laidle and literally sear the mushrooms and cilantro with -- >> do it. >> it's going fast. see. this on takes a minute. this is something you can do when you get home. you probably don't have that much time to cook. i have a dad to cook for me, god bless him. >> can he took for me too? >> any time you want. >> you guys are in charge of all the restaurants. >> i have the pleasure of being in charge of the entire operation, having an oversight role as the executive chef. i get to put my fingers in all the pies. >> while you make the switch there, if you want a copy of today's recipe log on to our website wbal.com. click on food. or wbal tv.

and now you can sear that in the oil. >> nope. >> you're done? >> it's done. >> we're gonna take this off. >> that was quick. >> it was. >> i love doing it this way. usually when i cook it in a pan, it's a mess. thank you very much. we'll see you in the 9:00 hour. have a great day. >> see ya.
